Our single estate Costa Rica, El Tigre SHB (Strictly Hard Bean) is farmed and milled by multi-generation coffee family in Heredia, Costa Rica's high altitude, volcanic mountain range to the northeast of San Jose. Their coffee is wet milled in their private mill, hand sorted, sun dried, and then stored in parchment until the exact time the coffee is ready for shipment.
The Costa Rica, El Tigre has a crisp, clean, flowery, lemon peel brightness, milk chocolate accents and an almond nuttiness in the finish.
